A TEAM of street pastors raised funds and awareness on a 17-mile trek recently.

Martin West, Nick Warren, Ken Howkins, Sally Wilkins, Emily Humphries and her family took part in the walk from Eastbourne Pier to Hastings Pier on Saturday, June 4, and they collected £154 along the way.

They also stopped to talk about their work helping revellers out in Hastings at the weekends where they help the police looking after people who are drunk, lost and emotional.

Mr West said: “Each of the walkers have a real passion to see Hastings a better place to live, and were even heard to say they would do the walk again, despite my insistence they talk to just about every other passer-by.

“That probably explains why the 17-mile walk took nine hours.”
